One Who Has Part of a Prayer to Make up Should Not Get Up Until the Imaam Has Given Both Tasleems – Imam as-Sa’dee

Bismillaah

One Who Has Part of a Prayer to Make up Should Not Get Up Until the Imaam Has Given Both Tasleems* Shaikh `Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Naasir as-Sa`dee –rahimahullaah -was asked:

Question:

“Is it permissible for one who has missed something from the Prayer to stand up to complete what he has missed before the imaam completes the Salutation (tasleem)?”

Answer:

“That is not permissible for him. It is upon him to remain until the imaam has completed the second Salutation. If he gets up before he has completed his Salutation, and he does not go back, then his Prayer becomes a Supererogatory (nafl) [Prayer], and it is upon him to repeat it; because it is obligatory upon one praying behind an imaam to remain along with his imaam until the Prayer of the imaam is completed.”
